FREE Webinar! Growing Executive Function Skills in Storytime

10 May

Guess what! I’m presenting! A webinar! And it’s FREE! It’s not only for library staff who present storytimes but also ECE providers. It’s provided via the excellent Early Childhood Investigations, who, if you’re not familiar with them already, you should GET familiar with because not only do they provide outstanding webinars, they’re always FREE. Getcha some professional development, y’all!

What you’ll get out of it: you will learn:

  • What executive function is
  • Why executive function is important to success in learning and life
  • Specific activities and books they can share in order to help the children in their care develop executive function

Studies are showing that “soft”, or executive function, skills, are better predictors of success in life than cognitive skills – the “hard” knowledge we have. Soft skills include being able to put information together creatively, self-regulate, and take on other perspectives. We grow these skills regularly in storytime and our webinar will tell you how and give you more ideas about how to help your children develop.

I hope you’ll join us!
